This image shows the entire Veil Nebula complex in Cygnus, consisting of NGC6960, NGC6979 & NGC6992 in the light of its Hydrogen-alpha emissions.
This image was acquired using an SBIG STX 16803 CCD camera mounted on a Tele Vue NP127is.
This image is a stack of 14 eight-minute exposures that were calibrated, stacked and sigmoid-scaled using AIP4Win V2.
This image has been resampled down from its original size of 4096x4096.|
An inverted view is shown below, which makes the fainter outlying nebulosity easier to see.
